Winter is pretty like a fairy's wing.
January 7, 2013
That tree full o' frost? PRETTY SURE THAT FAIRIES LIVE THERE.
Since the fall, Andrew and I have recommitted ourselves to exercise and we've been taking a great many walks. And they all came to a grinding halt over the holidays when a certain little girl was home from school. But a few days ago, she was back in school, it was sunny, which means there was no rain and despite the fact that it was 26 degrees ~ we went walking! I didn't get that much actual exercise on the first day, because I was stopping for pix every five minutes.
I've decided that even though my hair and skin hate hate hate winter, I don't loathe it as much as I used to. Seasons are kind of interesting, I've decided. While I think I could totally handle the 24/7 of amazing weather I used to take for granted in Hawaii, I do really like autumn leaves, cherry blossoms in the spring, hot summers and the frost in winter. That's fun. Andrew says he would hate to live someplace where there were no true seasonal changes. (I don't know...even though Hawaii only has one season, that season is AWESOME.)
I hope you enjoy the very cool lens flare that managed to pop up in several photos. Both Andrew and I greatly appreciate a good lens flare. It looks like space aliens have landed in the photo. He's pointed out that director J.J. Abrams is the King of Lens Flare. It's true. Go back and watch his version of 'Star Trek'. The man clearly never met a lens flare that he didn't like.
What else....oh HOW DID YOU ALL LIKE DOWNTON ABBEY??
Guess what. I have a special 'Downton Abbey' surprise to show you. Have a change of pants handy. Just in case. It's that exciting! Later this week, I promise....
